Acoustics, sound, and vibration effects everything from the design of a concert hall to the workings of a stereo system to the intricacies of the human ear. This book examines all aspects of acoustics. It covers engineering aspects (aerodynamics and jet noise, interaction of fluid motion and sound, infrasound, ultrasonics, quantum acoustics, etc.) and scientific aspects (auditory function, acoustical properties of the outer and inner ear, psychological speech perception, music and musical acoustics, hearing and sound perception among vertebrate/invertebrate animals).
